Don't miss the 5 and 10 cent store, I felt like I was back in my home town in the 50s. Their prices are todays, but where else can you get 8 shower caps for $1.59.

The people are so nice, southern gentility abounds here in small town Fredericksburg! We spent more than 4 hours just walking from shop to shop! So peaceful! Even in the rainy drizzle!

The shops and restaurants were the cutest little thing! We were lucky enough to get to see all the Christmas decor and lights still up, but the Lone Star Candy Bar had some weird and delicious snacks.

You can spend hours, actually days, on the main street of Fredericksburg. The family loved the shops, everything from antiques to clothing to gourmet foods. We ate at several excellent restaurants. People watching is best at a sidewalk table if available. We also visited a local orchard and picked a ton of strawberries. The Pacific World War II museum is... More

We visit Fredericksburg Main Street every year between Christmas and New Year. The Christmas decorations in the park are wonderful and there is a small ice skating rink in the park. After drinking a cup of hot chocolate while watching the skaters we strolled the Main Street perusing for some bargains. The items you will typically find are not "typical"... More

You can shop at the shops for just about anything. You can find expensive art, clothing, hats and don't forget to go to Dooleys 5 and 25 store. Just like the old 5 and dimes you used to go into.

I got tired of all the wine tasting places (which were all along 290 on the way in, too), as well as some of the more tasteless stores, such as the one that reminded me of Spencer's Gifts (e.g., farting things). However, there were also some nice stores such as Earth Treasures (a rock shop), a candle maker whose work... More
